Notice: On Sunday, 03/07/21: CS2N will be under maintenance between 9:00am-9:00pm Eastern. Please save any site uploads until after the maintenance is complete. Please contact email@example.com with questions and concerns.
Since the start of the COVID-19 crisis more than a year ago, working from home and taking online classes have become the new norm. Despite the difficulties, we remain vigilant, working and making the best with the opportunities presented to us. With that, we are continuing our support to teachers that are adapting to this new normal. CS2N Premium extensions and trials are still available to those who need them.
As always, we appreciate all of the support from the educators, coaches, and parents over the years. We continue to look forward to working with all, and together, we will reach the light at the end of this tunnel.
In the Robot Movement, the user learns to write programs that move the robot forward, backward, make turns and control the robot’s gripper arm. Complete the requirements and earn the “EV3 Movement” Badge.
Sensors introduce the user to the Touch, Ultrasonic, Gyro and Color Sensors. The user will learn how to use the Move Steering, Wait, Sound, and other blocks, users will also gain an understanding of the appropriate sensors to use to accomplish different tasks. Complete the requirement and earn the “EV3 Sensors” Badge.
In Decisions, the user will learn how to use looping blocks, Switch blocks and incorporating data such as sensor feedback, and then solve programming challenges. Complete the requirements and earn the “EV3 Decisions” Badge.
The Final Challenge introduces the user to concepts such as flowcharts, iterative design, project planning and the engineering process. At the end of the module, the user needs to solve the “Search and Rescue” challenge, where the robot will have to visit four different rooms and solve specific problems. Complete the requirements and earn the “EV3 Final Challenge” Badge.
Even when robots are being remotely controlled, they are running a program that controls how they respond to the signals sent by the VEX IQ Controller. This module will teach users how to write programs that enable remote control of the VEX IQ robot.
Sensor mounts allow sensors to be positioned properly on a robot. In this unit, you will be creating a sensor mount using a 3D printer. You will be introduced to a 3D modeling software, loading a model, preparing the model for printing, and finally printing the model. The project will be to modify the model to align the holes in the chassis.
In Mechanical Foundations, we are introduced to how to go about creating simple, yet durable structural foundations, essential for any robotics system. We begin by identifying important parts that help in creating simple structures, and creating examples of some simple structures. The project for this Unit, you will be creating a reinforcement crane to demonstrate your understanding of simple structural design.
